All Our Lumber is Branded With Our Name 





w. 



Loading Green Lumber to the Kilns 

)£ present this descriptive catalog, particularly 
adapted to the Homecrafters and Cabinet Shops. 
The price list covers a complete assortment of Domestic 
Hardwoods and White Pines, a great number of Foreign 
Woods and a variety of Fir and Hardwood Panels of all 
sizes. 

We feel confident that at last, with this catalog, a lumber 
company offers to the Homecrafters a source of supply 
heretofore unequalled. 



FRANK PAXTON LUMBER COMPANY 

Packers Station 
KANSAS CITY, KANSAS 



The prices in this catalog, except where 
otherwise indicated, are "per foot/' which 
means "board foot." In lumber one inch 
thick or thinner, a board foot is the same as 
a square foot. On all items over one inch in 
thickness, however, the additional thickness 
must be taken into consideration. For 
example: a square foot of H" lumber con- 
tains one and one-quarter board feet; a 
square foot of 1 i" lumber one and one-half 
board feet, etc. In other words, a board 
Hxl0"-12' would contain 12* board feet, 
a board 2x10"- 12' would contain 20 board 
feet, and so on. 

In estimating the board footage required 
in lumber thicker than one inch, be sure to 
use the method outlined above. 



OUR GUARANTEE 

We guarantee that all lumber will be furnished as 
described. If the customer is not satisfied with the 
purchase in every way, he may return the material. 
Upon receipt of this we will immediately refund the 
full purchase price.

stiff nor tough, but, because of its even grain and extreme ease of 
working, is one of the most widely used woods. It finishes well, 
but does not take a stain. Basswood ought to be enameled or

FURNITURE SQUARES 

Our experience has taught us that Homecrafters are often 
obliged to buy entire planks of wood in order to get perfect stock 
for table legs. You will find it quite an economy to buy our 
Squares milled to size. 

We suggest that you order them always in the "Rough" as mill- 
ing charges are rather high. Furthermore, in S4S lumber there is 
considerable danger of damage in transit. 

Our assortment of Squares is limited to Gum, Magnolia, Philip- 
pine Mahogany, Poplar, Oak and Walnut. Each of them is listed 
with the regular stock in alphabetical order. 

It is economical to order always at least 100 lbs. of lumber at one time 
as the minimum freight charge is based on TOO pounds.

CUM 

The Figured Red Gum is not produced from the same trees as 
Red Gum and Sap Gum. It is the peculiar growth of certain trees 
which results in "Figured" Gum. 

While Red Gum and Sap Gum are produced from the same trees, 
they are distinguished by the fact that boards containing excessive 
sap are graded as Sap Gum.

Steaming Green Lumber — The Initial Process in Drying 



KILN DRYING 

The process and reason for the kiln seasoning of lumber are 
familiar to many, but very few realize the importance of proper 
methods and the serious effects resulting- from improper drying. 
Nature has not offered us a standard article with which to work; 
consequently, there is no formula for perfect drying. 

Wood in its natural state contains moisture and the problem of 
kiln drying is the removal of this water through a controlled sys- 
tem of evaporation, utilizing heat, humidity, and air circulation. 

Proper drying depends largely upon the knowledge and experi- 
ence of the kiln operator; knowledge of the botanical structure of 
the wood and a keen appreciation of the moisture existing in the 
lumber entering the kiln, and the experience to control conditions 
necessary to properly dry the lumber. 

Our six kilns are of the most modern type and are under the 
supervision of an expert wood technologist who has had many 
years of experience in dry kiln operation, having acquired his 
technical knowledge at the U. S. Forest Products Laboratory at 
Madison, Wisconsin. 

The Frank Paxton Lumber Company is the only lumber company 
in its trade territory owning and operating Dry Kilns.

PINE 

We offer in this price list three kinds of Pine, namely: California, 
Northern and Sugar Pine. The California is also known as Western 
or Pondosa Pine. The Northern White Pine contains chemical 
properties that are resistant to atmospheric decay. The U. S. Gov- 
ernment specifications for outside construction always require the 
use of Northern White Pine. The Sugar Pine is a splendid wood 
for pattern making and in the manual training shops is extensively 
used for the making of drawing boards and projects of a similar 
nature.

WALNUT 

As the tree does not produce long logs we are quoting you two 
prices on the lengths. The widths run from 5 to 9 inches. 

An interesting and modern feature in the manufacture of Amer-

Walnut Furniture Strips 

In the manufacture of walnut a lot of short boards accumulate. 
They are equally as fine for quality as the regular stock and quite 
economical in many instances. This American Walnut is offered as 
Clear One Pace and two edges in spite of the fact that 60% gener- 
ally runs Clear Two Faces. The average width is from 4 to 5 inches.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THE PURCHASING 

OF LUMBER AND PANELS 

All items offered in this price list are of the finest quality in 
grade and texture and kiln dried to a moisture content dependable 
to your most exacting requirements. 

WIDTH AND LENGTH 

The width and length of all lumber items quoted are random 
unless otherwise listed in the catalog. The average width and 
length of random width and length stock vary with the species of 
the wood. Basswood, Birch and Maple, on the average, are not as 
wide as Gum, Mahogany or Poplar. 

For all practical purposes, the following rule will apply: 
WIDTHS 5" and wider, LENGTHS 6' and longer on all items not 
quoted in specified sizes. 

Hardwood lumber is manufactured and sold on a random width 
and length basis. It must be measured for every fraction of an 
inch in width and for odd lengths such as 6', 7', 8', etc., except 
Mahogany, which is measured in the same manner for width but 
on the half foot for length, as 8', 8W, 9', 9%'. Since this is the 
accepted custom, our stock will be measured to you on this basis. 

If specified widths or lengths are required, we will select, if 
possible, approximately to your specifications, measurement to be 
based on the full width and length of the stock, at the following 
additional charges: 

For specified length add 2c per foot 

width from 5 to 8" add 2c " " 

" 8 to 10" " 4c " " 

" " over 10" " 6c " " 

Example: 1x9" random length add 4c per foot 
2x6"— 12' " 4c " 

1x12"— 14' " 8c " M 

Exceptions to this are Tennessee Red Cedar, any quarter sawn 
lumber, Walnut and California Pine of the 6' and 8' lengths, for 
which we cannot accept orders specifying either width or length. 

TERMS — MINIMUM ORDER 

Our prices are quoted F. 0. B. Kansas City or Denver, whichever 
happens to be your nearest shipping point. You to pay the freight 
upon arrival. The order must be accompanied by check or money 
order for at least one-half of the cost. Balance C. 0. D. Our prices 
are based on a minimum total order of five dollars ($5.00). On 



( 22 



ii'immiiiiiiii I 



smaller orders we charge 20% extra for handling. In other words, 
if you should want to buy only $3.00 worth of miscellaneous items 
per catalog price, they would cost you $3.60. Orders for less than 
$1.00 respectfully declined. 

SUGGESTIONS FOR ORDERING 

We suggest that you order lumber in the rough as it is less sub- 
ject to damage in transit. 

Items not listed in catalog surfaced two sides (S2S) will be 
shipped rough unless your order specifies surfaced two sides (S2S). 

Items not listed in catalog in specified widths will be shipped 
random widths and lengths. 

Items listed in catalog in specified widths will be shipped ran- 
dom lengths. 

For surfacing lumber two sides (S2S) add 1c per foot. 

For surfacing squares four sides (S4S) add 5c each on 2x2 
squares and 10c each on the larger sizes. 

FREIGHT 

Do not let the small item of freight expense stand in the way of 
getting the best of lumber. As a matter of fact, the freight cost 
on a minimum shipment of 100 pounds is only from 2 to 5 cents 
per foot from Kansas City, north to Iowa, east to New York, or 
south to Florida — or from our Denver warehouse, averaging from 
3 to 9 cents per foot west to Wyoming, California or Oregon. 

The freight is really a minor matter when you get Kiln Dried 
Lumber of the best quality. 

On the following page are typical freight rates to any section 
of the United States. 

We gladly give you a delivered price upon request. 

All domestic lumber takes the fourth class rate of freight. 
Mahogany and all Foreign Woods take a slightly higher rate. The 
Softwoods such as Basswood, Pine and Poplar vary from 2 to 2.5 
pounds per foot while the Hardwoods such as Birch, Oak and Maple 
weigh from 3.5 to 4 pounds per foot. Certain very dense Foreign 
Woods will weigh as much as 6 to 7 pounds per foot. Your local 
freight agent can give you the rate which will enable you to esti- 
mate the freight charges. 

As the freight charge on any one shipment is based on a mini- 



( 23 )

mum of 100 pounds, you will find it economical to always order at 
least 100 pounds at a time.

ARRIVAL AT DESTINATION 

Instruct your drayman to inspect lumber carefully on its arrival 
before giving freight agent clear receipt. If the shipment shows 
loss or damage, the drayman must have the freight agent make a 
notation on the original paid freight bill covering full extent of 
loss or damage. You can then file claim against the carrier for 
full damage and receive prompt settlement. Without this notation 
on your freight bill you would find it practically impossible to 
support a claim. Our bill of lading, a copy of which will be mailed 
to you, is our receipt for having made delivery to the carrier in 
perfect condition; therefore, we can assume no responsibility for 
loss or damage in transit.

As an Added Service to You 
At No Extra Cost 

PAXTON shipments are protected in" every 
possible manner against damage in transit. 

— thin stock and rough squares are bundled 
and steel strapped. 

— wide boards are cleated to prevent end 
splits. 

— panels and finished squares are protected 
by bundling, wrapping or packing in fibre 
cartons. 



c^-^> 



For surfacing lumber two sides (S2S), add 1c per foot to listed prices* 
Before specifying width or length, see page 22.
